View all staff


As the HR Generalist at Singularity University, Chez works closely with hiring managers on both the onboarding and exit processes, manages compliance requirements including anti-harassment training and administers all aspects of benefits and payroll. Chez is committed to designing policies and procedures that create efficiency and effectiveness across the entire organization.

In her previous generalist role on the People Team at Omidyar Network, Chez managed people data, created a number of policies including parental leave, rolled out the performance management process and served as a peer coach working with employees on topics such as giving and receiving feedback and goal setting. Prior to Omidyar Network Chez’s career focused on retail customer service and management at companies including Nordstrom and Restoration Hardware.

Chez graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in business administration and management from Notre Dame de Namur University and holds certifications in Holistic Wellness and Life Coaching from the ICF accredited Health Coach Institute. She thrives on finding what is unique about each person she meets because she knows that given the right systems, support and opportunity people are capable of exponential greatness. One of her long-term goals is to help create a new narrative about HR, where People Teams are seen as a key thought partners to leadership, not regulators and disciplinarians.

In her spare time Chez enjoys spending time with her husband, young son and crazy dog, playing outdoors, DYI remodeling, and working out.
